Ynys Môn MP Virginia Crosbie has been appointed as a Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) at the Welsh Office in a Government reshuffle.

She said that the new role would provide further opportunities for her to “champion our precious union”.

She joins Secretary of State for Wales, Simon Hart, and the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, David TC Davies.

A Parliamentary Private Secretary is appointed by a minister to be his or her assistant, and the role is seen as the first rung on the ladder for a backbench MP who wants to become involved in the running of the government.

Virginia Crosbie, who was first elected in December 2019, said: “I am delighted and very honoured by this appointment which puts me at the heart of UK Government decision-making about Wales.

“It will be a privilege to support ministers and, importantly, ensure that Ynys Môn is front and centre of Government policy.

“Everyone can rest assured, I will continue to lobby for more jobs, skilled employment and investment for islanders. Already, we have hundreds of jobs brought here following the announcement of the HMRC’s Inland Border Facility.

“We have high-tech jobs and investment through Holyhead Hydrogen Hub, and I am very hopeful the planned Thermal Hydraulic Testing Facility will come to Anglesey.

“But there is more to do, especially around a freeport for Wales and the championing of our precious union. It also gives me even more motivation to continue to learn the Welsh language!”

If you are going to keep writing the inane rubbish remember it is parties not “party’s”.

Ifan Morgan Jones is earning money by playing on your narrow minded, snide, racist, parochial prejudices.

No wonder this site is a laughing stock in the wider world.

Precious Union eh? Where the current cabinet has no Welsh born member. Or Irish. Token Scot (but only as Scottish minister). and 17 of the 30 members are ex public school boys (and gels). Imperialism rules OK. And colonialism. Racism too.

[But fellow Welsh people – please avoid abusive language. It’s not required. We are better than this].

To be fair, the union is about as precious as a dog turd in a plastic shopping bag.

Ms Crosbie, if you are reading this, please show us how the UK has and will in the future benefit Wales. If the Union has benefited Wales – why is our country one of the poorest in Europe? If you are reading – show us some facts and figures proving your argument.
